There’s a great write-up on the loft-style apartment in the latest issue of Saskatoon Home.
“Carmen’s apartment is the first of 60 that Drinkle owner Dave Denny and design consultant her Opdahl are renovating to open the space, bring in more natural light and add heaps of character in homage to the building’s 100 year history.
Dave’s plan is to maximize on the European “micro-loft” feel of the apartments, and has spent two years getting the planning and design right for the first conversion. The original 12-foot height ceiling was restored and the full windows revealed. Walls were knocked out to open the space. A clever floor plan, furniture placement and salvaged materials create a combo of steampunk and repurposed chic.
Design consultant Sherry Opdahl of Atrous Consulting loves the minimalist approach to the project. This minimalist look, combined with the exposed brick, and original details, gives the space a definite European loft vibe that is very charming.”
